This drama tracks the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. Working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing, became radicalized and turned to violence as the only route to change. They were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality. The story of Maud Watts’ fight is ‘gripping, heart-breaking and inspirational’.
